I love the movie, ‘Ground Hog Day’. I’ve seen it quite a few times, OK scores of times, and cannot envision a February without it. In this movie Bill Murray plays Phil Connors, a weatherman who achieves an odd sort of immortality.

Cutie Cousin

Holy cow, how cute is this kid? Of course, I might be a little biased as this is my cousin’s kid. Her teeth, or lack of teeth, just crack me up. If you look closely you can see her new adult tooth just starting to peek through the gum. That adult

Fidel’s Teeth

I looked for images of Fidel Castro’s teeth, but he wasn’t a smiley kinda guy. What I did find was this cold war era cartoon. It's kinda brutal and dark, but that was the cold war.

Game Over, Man

Oh, what a bummer. Bill Paxton died yesterday. I was a big fan.  I loved him in, “Frailty” and “Aliens”. In Aliens when the rescue ship crashes, leaving the crew stranded on a planet with scary monsters, that’s the oft-quoted line he delivers

Monster

Wow, the Charlize Theron movie, “Monster” is great. It’s so dark and disturbing it’s certainly not for everyone. However, the transformation that Charlize Theron makes from gorgeous movie star to bedraggled, homeless, abused murderer is

Mountain Don’t

Holy cow, I don't usually cringe at movie dental scenes, and I certainly didn't expect a cringe-worthy dental scene from the movie, "That Sugar Film". However, I found this scene so disturbing I briefly forgot what movie I was watching.

I love, “Planes Trains and Automobiles” the Steve Martin, John Candy movie. It’s a holiday classic. I really enjoy the fact that it plays on TV often at this time of year. It always makes me chuckle, and I still get choked up at the end.
